Personal Details of New British Spy Chief On Facebook

"Personal details and photographs of the incoming head of Britain's international spy agency have been posted on Facebook, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband acknowledged Sunday....The man in question, John Sawers, is currently the British ambassador to the United Nations. His wife posted details about their family, vacations and residence on the social-networking site, British media reported Sunday. Her Web site has since been taken down, reports said." This according to CNN.

Miliband insisted that no compromising information had been relvealed. "You know he wears Speedo, swim, swimming, swimsuit... I mean what is that? I mean, that's not a state secret," he reportedly said on the BBC.

What's amazing about this is not that his wife posted these details on Facebook initially, but that MI6 did not catch this before his appointment was formalized and, at the very least, delete this information from her site beforehand. (That's NOT him in the photo above, by the way.)
